kind of how i felt about the "cut the crap" tour w/o mick jones; what i wouldn't give for strummer in any configuration now (although seeing him in place of shane in the pogues was bizarre...)

My favorite tribute band:

...or is it crystal ship? I always get confused...

It is unfair to Rob Barraco, per what Billy said about DSO. Rob B. is a recording musician who does his own thing on the side as well as working with Phil & Friends.

I loved the dead shows I saw this year (Washington DC, Charlottesville, Philly 2 nights.) I think Warren and Jeff did a bang-up job for the most part. Warren needs to lose the wah-wah pedal though. His New Speedway vocals in C'ville eclipsed Bobby short-shorts version in Philly by a mile (thanx for effing up the 3rd verse Bob), and his Mississippi Half-Step in Philly was the best twist on the song yet.

"It is unfair to Rob Barraco, per what Billy said about DSO. Rob B. is a recording musician who does his own thing on the side as well as working with Phil & Friends."

Rob also handled his half of the "hot seat"(shared with Jeff) admirably during the 2002 The Other Ones tour. He contributed a lot vocally as well. I wonder if he might not have been asked back for the Dead 2009 spring tour if he hadn't been locked into the DSO gigs.

"I think if you're going to spend that much time on music you should work on your own music. I'd do some Grateful Dead and do some of my own tunes."

This may be a valid point. Though I have never seen DSO, from what I have heard they are very talented musicians. It seems somewhat a shme to expend that much talent as as "tribute band". However, I have attended Beatle, Byrds and Jimi Hendrix tribute shows that I throughly enjoyed.
